Pres. Obama may have issued an executive order requiring government meetings and meetings taking place on government property to begin with attendees saluting and declaring "All Hail Science!" Does this violate the separation of church and state?

Yes. It establishes a state religion indistinguishable from atheism.

" a religion indistinguishable from atheism"
Atheism isn't a religion, there's your first problem, this is old news

I said science was a religion, and that it's virtually indistinguishable from atheism, but I never directly stated atheism was one. Careful reading helps.

Indistinguishable, "no noticeable difference"
You, at the very least, are strongly insinuating atheism and science are somehow religions which is incorrect

Saying science is a religion is insanely more far fetched than saying atheism is

it is, increasingly, blind adherence to evolutionary dogma, just as you excoriate Christians for adhering to the Bible.

You do realize the bible is a book that claims itself for fact checking that has nearly no evidence for any dogmatic claims and science is based off actual testing and facts, don't you?

Yes, because the phrase elevates science to a religion. It is not, but that phrase shows a new kind of religious belief where science is used to form a religion. Hmmm... why do I think of Scientology now ;)

No, because science isn't s religion. But this still violates freedom of speech.

If that were to happen, it could violate free speech.

Is the oath before going to court a freedom of speech violation?

The subpoena process overrides free speech.

Of course not, science is neither a church nor a religion

I don't think he would do that, because it's kind of ridiculous. But it wouldn't violate the separation, because science is not a religion and plenty of scientists come from religions of all kinds. Really, Americans agree with science on most things.

I doubt many people who don't watch Futurama will get this.

And I did say he "may have" done this- I can't confirm or deny it

Ah, I haven't watched a lot of Futurama.

No problem. You shouldn't downvote every poll you don't like though.
